UKIP's failure to field candidates boosts two leading parties

Patrick Byrne

BBC News

UKIP failed to field candidates in several Hertfordshire constituencies, and after its leader Paul Nuttall resigned after a "woeful showing" overall, he said: "A new era must begin with a new leader."

Stevenage was a close-run contest with Conservative Stephen McPartland retaining the seat with 50.3% of the vote including a 5.7% increase in support.

In second place was Labour's Sharon Taylor with 43.4% of the vote, boosted by a 9.2% increase.

Conservative Mark Prisk held on to Hertford and Stortford, boosting his party's support by 4.2% to take 60.3% of the vote share, leaving Labour trailing on 28.6% despite a 10.7% boost in its support.

In Broxbourne Conservative Charles Walker took 62.2% of the vote with Labour's Selina Norgrove on 28.9% after a 10.75% boost to her share, while UKIP slumped by 15.7% to leave it with only 4%, slightly ahead of the Lib Dems on 3.1%.

In St Albans Conservative Anne Main held on to the seat with 43.1% of the vote from the Lib Dems' Daisy Cooper on 32.4%.

Hertford and Stortford: Constituency analysis

Andy Holmes

BBC Three Counties Radio political reporter

This is another seat that has been Conservative since it was created in 1983, with Mark Prisk being the constituency's representative since 2001.

Mark Prisk
Conservative Party

Prisk has a majority of more than 21,000 which he has steadily grown since winning the seat.

Hertford and Stortford is one of six seats in the county where UKIP aren’t standing, so Prisk’s challengers come from the Lib Dems, Labour and the Green Party candidates.

Labour’s representative Katherine Chibah stood against Prisk in 2015 as well.
